Astros, Say Hello to Five Hundred. Five Hundred, Say Hello to the Astros.
The Astros lost to the Phillies last night to return to the .500 mark. But saying that the Astros lost last night is to insult the word lost. The Astros didn’t just lose last night. The Astros were demolished by a score of 11-4.
There is some good news. Craig Biggio led off the game with a home run. And Brad Lidge didn’t get torched. Then again, Lidge didn’t pitch.
That’s it for the good news.
The Astros now have three games in Pittsburgh. Woody Williams is set to open the series with the Pirates, if he’s still healthy. – John Royal
